This is only one of many styles. You can check out my new website at http://www.shinymoonbeams.com
I will be offering retro style handbags, beach themed jewelry made with Shells and Pearls, Moonstones and more.
All jewelry that originates from a living creature, plant or other living organism is considered organic jewelry. Most of the jewelry on this site is made once. When it’s gone it’s gone. Why not treat yourself to some 1 of a kind jewelry today!
What have I been up to other then that, well building a website was no easy task let me tell you. I had to install wordpress the old fashioned way because the Fantastico would not allow me to put it in my main tree, I really needed it in my main tree. then I had to find a shopping cart and learn how to use that. Ugg!!! what a chore that was.
Well it's done so now I can move on and hopefully get all the things done in time I need to.
I made this really cute, (Well I think it's cute), altered art tag today for a slight diversion of my building websites and beading.
I really enjoyed this very much. Creating cards and tags have been something I have been doing since the 90's.
The pinecone and flower stamp I used were given to me from a friend. She gave me about 8 stamps. All brand new. I bought the birds, It came with several in one pack and I used these supplies:
distress inks, distress reinkers, rock candy distress stickles, heat tool, mini mister, perfect pearls, glossy accents, ink blending tool by Ranger, grungepaper, scissors, stamps, glue, ribbon and other elements.
I captured some cute finches on a video from my window, today I caught the tinniest little Lesser Finches they are so adorable. I have not seen not one American Gold Finch, even though Sac Bee said it was in the top list of birds in our area. But maybe it's been to cold for them yet. I read they are mostly in the southern end of the state this time of year. I even have thistle seed out.
Steve and I went out to the rice fields and looked in trees for birds, we found a old oak tree there, I was looking for a owl, but I hear they come out at dusk. I caught a woodpecker instead. I was not unhappy to catch that shot.
Small and Black and white woodpecker.
Black and white barred black, streaked with white on the center of crown, red on rear crown and upper nap.

I bought three books about birds, two are very old, published in 1939 "The Book of Birds".
It's by Gilbert Grosvenor and the art in it is fantastic by Allan Brooks, just gorgeous art of the birds.

Red-breasted Sapsucker Sphyrapicus ruber
The last book I bought is just a Backyard Bird book I bought at Lowe's. It's very interesting though.
Have a nice weekend. ~Kat
